The Office of the Alabama 9-1-1 Board has been asked to make Ebola-related resources available to the Emergency Communications Districts. The following are links that are being shared on behalf of the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These links are for information sharing purposes only, so that the decision-makers for local centers can make the appropriate choices within their agency. NENA as well as APCO are posting resources on their sites along with Alabama NENA.
All wireless 9-1-1 calls are routing through ANGEN as of December 5, 2014. The call volume has increased each month as wireless telephone companies completed their conversion to ANGEN. January was slightly lower due to normal seasonal activity.

We ask that all Alabama agencies respond to this survey on training. The purpose of this initial survey is to establish a baseline for Alabama, so that the Standards and Training Committee can begin putting together the outline of a plan to accomplish and establish training levels and standards within the State. We desire that everyone have buy-in to this program by offering your input in this survey, which will serve as a starting point for the committee to explore existing programs within each agency.
Pursuant to Section 11-98-5 Ala. Code, 1975, as amended, the Alabama Statewide 9-1-1 Board is now required to establish a maximum number of wireline 9-1-1 charges to be imposed at a single subscriber location for bills rendered on or after January 1, 2015. In order to do so, the Board needs an accurate count of connections currently being assessed the monthly 9-1-1 service charge, particularly business accounts with multiple connections assessed.
